Lotus Notes is the official e-mail system used by all Fort Hays State University employees. To obtain an account, the department chair or administrative assistant must submit a CTC Request for Services to request initial computing accounts for the new employee (see Information for New Faculty and Staff for details).
The Registrar's Office sends messages to faculty e-mail addresses regarding important dates, enrollment, grades, and other information. You may access Lotus Notes through the web (using iNotes) to receive e-mail and work with your calendar. After your account is created, you can access iNotes, as follows:
DELETE all messages you don't need so as not to exhaust your allotted server space. Click the Delete button to remove notes from your Inbox. Then click on the Trash Can icon and select Empty Trash.
CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD as soon as possible. We recommend using a password that has seven or more characters, with at least one letter and one number. To change your password, click on Preferences (at the top of the window), then Security (on the left side), and then Change… Follow all prompts.
Forwarding Your LN Mail to an Alternate Primary E-Mail Account
Some people prefer using other e-mail accounts such as Gmail or Hotmail. Because FHSU is unable to provide support for other e-mail systems, we cannot assist with problems encountered while using other e-mail providers. However, if you would like to forward your Lotus Notes messages to an alternate primary e-mail address, contact the CTC HelpDesk and provide the e-mail address.
For Assistance or More Information…
